A Message from Dr. Beth Holder, Associate Dean for Student Success

Posted on:

Dear First Year Families,

It is hard to believe your student is finishing their first-year at High Point University! Transitioning from high school to college is one of the biggest transitions your student will complete. This journey is often faced with the need for increased independence, being on one’s own for the first time, having to deal with challenges without the immediate physical presence of a parent, etc… Congratulations to your student for their successes!

This journey can also be a huge transition for families. Congratulations to you as well.

As our students successfully complete their first year, they will leave the Student Success Team and be assigned to a faculty advisor for the declared major. While your student will not have a Success Coach, they will be advised and mentored by one of our outstanding faculty members. These assignments will be made and communicated at the beginning of August. While we will no longer serve as their official advisor, we are still here! We love when upper-class students drop by to say hello and provide updates on their lives. For our students majoring in School of Business, School of Communication, or Undeclared, these students will remain with their success coach for their sophomore year.  

It has been a joy, honor and privilege to work with your student this academic year. We look forward to hearing about their continued successes and accomplishments.


Go Panthers!

Dr. Beth Holder
Associate Dean for Student Success
